Description Andrew Dahms 2017-08-09 23:46:17 EDT
Red Hat CloudForms 4.6 adds the ability to work with generic objects as part of automate requests, services, and catalogs.

This bug tracks the new addition to the user interface of a 'Generic Objects' screen under the 'Automation' menu. Further work will be performed to add functionality to this screen, but all that is required on the documentation side is to add a basic introduction to generic objects and a procedure on how to view them.

Additional bugs shall be raised to address further functionality.

Assigning to Chris for review.

Chris - it's not super clear where the best place would be in the documentation for this, but it looks like the 'Catalogs and Services' chapter of the Provisioning Virtual Machines and Hosts might be a good initial location.

What I suspect we need at this stage is a few lines about generic objects, and just the procedure on how to view this new screen. We can add more detail as we go along and see other PRs merged.
